After School Program
The After School Program offers school readiness and recreational activities for children (ages 5 to12) in a safe environment before and after the school day. Trained and qualified adult group workers provide children with instruction on social and emotional skills needed to conquer academic and life challenges by focusing on positive building blocks.
The After School Program is housed in both Rowe Elementary School and the Northwestern Settlement. We provide our scholars with age-appropriate social emotional support and academic guidance from staff. Our scholars also participate in a wide variety of group and individual activities, homework help, and various clubs focusing on different areas of interest.
All of the After School staff meet the requirements and qualifications set by the state of Illinois and the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Our staff participate in ongoing training focusing on health & safety, child development, classroom management, among others.
